Prayer Request: Accelerating Bible Translation

Ask God’s help in overcoming barriers to Bible Translation

Today, many people are still waiting to engage God’s Word in their heart language. That’s why American Bible Society is partnering with local translators and Bible translation agencies to overcome barriers that create delays in Bible translation. Together we can accelerate Bible translation by improving training, technology and processes for translation teams around the world.

The result? Bible translations are being completed in record time. Examples of this are the Nsenga and Ila New Testament translation projects which took only three and a half years to complete. Now 1 million people in Zambia can engage God’s Word in their heart language.

Please join us in praying for Bible translations around the world to be completed with speed and accuracy, helping more people in more places engage God’s Word.


Pray For:

  • Bible Translation projects currently underway. Pray for the resources and tools needed to complete Bible translation projects around the world.
  • Bible translation agenciesworking together to accelerate Bible translation around the world. Ask God to give them wisdom, resources and a spirit of unity to achieve this bold vision.
  • Bible translators to receive God’s wisdom and strength as they strive to make the Bible available in communities worldwide.
  • People still waiting to read Scripture in their heart language. Ask God to guide them and provide for them as they wait to read the Bible for the first time.
